My family just returned from five nights here and we are certainly relaxed and well exercised! From zip lining to surfing we had fun exploring the area. The on site beach had free snorkels, boogie boards, paddle boards and kayaks - all that we used and had a lot of fun. Our room was wonderful with a large screened lanai. The best beach is Prieta- a free short shuttle ride from FS and has fantastic fun waves to play in that we're small enough for my kids and large enough to catch boogie board waves. Even on site there were monkeys, turtles, and a variety of rays and fish.
Cons: it is really American. Everyone speaks English, the food is all typical American resort food - breakfast buffet for $40 with pancakes, eggs, etc. or ala carte with the same. There was one option that was local food for breakfast- one for lunch at Ticos- the rest were wraps and sandwiches, Cobb salads, etc. Since we are a family that enjoys local experiences this was difficult for us and finally rented a car for the day for $120 and exploring Tamarinado, Playa Negra and some other areas that were about an hour away- so worth it (and go to FTs to eat if you can- yummy local cuisine!).
In short- if you are looking for a secluded beautiful resort that is away from it all that doesn't feel particularly foreign, this is perfect for you. For those looking for authentic Costa Rican experience- I would recommend other places closer to the action - Nayara in Arena, Treehouses in Monteverde, even some boutique hotels in other beach cities that have access to local culture.
